The Malta Experience

Right in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea there is a group of three islands, called the Maltese Archipelago. That's where I currently water my feet - literally so as it has been raining more than the average Maltese can remember and would appreciate - me neither. That makes for wet MTB-rides. So just last Sunday we rode - 8 bikers all in all, guided by Ron - for 5 hours, twisty and muddy 40 kms long and an elevational gain of 520 m. It was real fun and supports my notion that there'a trail for mountainbiking everywhere and that there's no unlikely area for trails. Gozo is awaiting us; let's see what it will be like. And it was perfect - sun was shining, temperatures in the milder tens and the trails along the cliffs technical and tough; I leraned the differnece between smooth and soft, when I crashed falling over the handlebar: the limestone was smooth but definitely not soft. As I have already stated: a perfect experience, just AWESOME !!!

  1. Whow, beneidenswert. Dass es im Süden schon so toll zum Biken geht, wennn bei uns tiefer Winter herrscht. LG LeiseRadler
